Carol'Ann K. Hansen
Director of Case Mix / Medicare / RAI
Carol’Ann joined the Walker Methodist family in April 2000. She holds an Associate of Science Nursing Degree – RN from St. Mary’s College and has Focus education in Medicare, Case Mix, and MDS processes.
On a day-to-day basis, Carol’Ann works to ensure resident care is assessed at appropriate levels for reimbursement. She also oversees the RAI team, sets up plans of care for Medicare/Insurance residents, and reviews and submits MDSs to CMS. She is very well known for being someone who can take a lot of data and information and put it into a simple format that is easy to understand. While at work, she is most passionate about seeing residents get the coverage they need.
Outside of her nursing career, Carol’Ann enjoys finding fossils, agates, and artifacts. She is also quite passionate about animals. In her spare time, you will likely find Carol’Ann out in a creek, river, ocean, woods, or walking old railway tracks looking for fossils, agates, artifacts, or odds and ends for homemade gifts. The rest is spent with her animals.
At the end of the day, Carol’Ann would like to be remembered as the adventurous one. She’d also like to be known as someone who was compassionate about the care individuals received while in a senior care center and a true, loyal friend.
